"In a recent Politico column, Jon Cowan and Jim Kessler, respectively the president and senior vice-president of The Third Way, criticize 'progressives' for opposing deals which cut Social Security benefits. They advise the Strengthen Social Security Coalition to 'wise up and buck up the president so Social Security reform gets done in the coming weeks.' But their advice belies the expressed wishes of the American people, who poll after poll reveals, overwhelmingly favor eliminating Social Security’s projected shortfall through increased revenues, not through reductions in Social Security’s already modest benefits, just $13,000 a year on average." [editor's note: As usual, neither of these positions is correct - SAT] (07/12/11)
